OMG love this video. I’m a pot fan myself. The brush review was great

Amrita Bal says:

Love this series! Thank you guys so much for the info

kshea 0501 says:

Omg!!!! Great vid. Such an informative complete list of all things eyeliner. I am a liner junkie. But… Some faves are…
Laura Geller eye calligraphy. That one is a felt tip pen that applies pretty thinly and can be built up if ya don’t have hooded eyes. Good staying power. Same for the ciate London fierce flicks. Same qualities.
And my tight line faves are the Mac chromagraphic pencils. Also the NYX collection noir glossy black pencil. Actually nearly all NYX waterproof pencils.
Phew! Sorry for the book. You guys are the best! I hope I can help someone out with my faves.

Love your videos .

Lizzie Ababneh says:

OMG !!!! Love you guys. One day I will meet you in person. I work at Sephora as well and I had been learning so much with you guys. LOVE YOU so much guys!!!!!!!

Joanne Glaser says:

What color eye liner would you recommend for brown eyes? I would really love to make them pop and bring out the yellowy-green color in them.

Karotsy says:

I have tried so many eyeliners my favorites are gel marc jabobs and It cosmetics gel liners for tight lining. So nice easy and long lasting and the Kat Von D for upper lid.

Rachel Comeau says:

Just love you guys! Trying to step up my eyeliner game. I feel like it’s much easier for me to do graphic liner looks on other people than myself. I’m thinking about trying a different brush.


How can someone avoid the “eyeliner mirror effect” ?? After a few hours, I get eyeliner smudge under my lower lashes.

Julie Satkowski says:

Kat Von D Trooper Liner I have oil eyelids and it doesnt budge even when my shadow sometimes does lol. It is also super easy to get the precise line and the component is easy to hold. For a smudgy look I love the Kat Von D Basket Case it smudges great and then stays put all day and I mean I have to remove it lol. For color deff the Urban Decay glide super easy don’t have any catch no yanking or skipping across my lid.

RRBish says:

Your how-to’s are the highlight of my day! I get out my notebook and go to town!
I am pretty much a Kat Von D addict. I love that some days, my sephora pro #33 and the Everlasting lip color o’ the day can end up being an AMAZING eyeliner! With Kat, anything goes!!!

Inang Jamili Nasron says:

That Sephora crayon is a life saver especially when you are in the go. It doesn’t budge after it sets and quick to apply. Plus it travels easy and you will have no surprise spillage. I have them in several nude colors. And Kat Von D eye liner is the bomb. Its ez to put on even for wrinkly 41 years old eyes…Hope it helps someone. Great video again, I truly enjoy it.

stufcrze says:

LadyJ says:

Leddy FM says:

Ok, so what do I have to do to get you guys to narrate an audiobook? Let’s make it happen please! I just love listening to you two speak ❤️

Carosanzera says:

Who can I pay to have David do my makeup??? Love him!!

Emily Wagner says:

What if you have almost non-existent lashes with very hooded eyes?

Nunya Bidness says:

Poor Jeffry can hardly get a word in edgewise…

Carosanzera says:

You two are so adorable!!!

Sumi Chatterjee says:

I love Whirlpool, grapevine gel eye pencil liner by Marc Jacobs , Thank u for the lovely tips and tricks

Jessica McDonald says:

David and Jeffery, I love y’all so much!! Can you please help me with my dilemma!!! I use Nars long wear eyeliner in black to tight line and would love a nude on the water line but I HAVE NOT been able to find one that won’t transfer when I blink!!! The Black always transfers on the nude. PLEASE HELP!!! Also I would love to see a series on “Best For” porcelain, light, medium and dark skin….to include bronzer, Contor, blush, highlighter, lip color and eyeshadow color!!

Jasmine K. says:

Hey guys, trying to get a good liner that will work in my upper tightline and in between my lashes. I’ve tried both the Urban Decay 24/7 eye pencil and the Make Up Forever Aqua XL Liner and I find they are both almost too smooth and they tend to goop up in between my lashes and cause clumping in between. Any suggestions? Love your videos!

Toni F says:

U two together rock.

Yodit Seifu says:

Why don’t you guys also the price you are recommending? It would be so much easier… thanks for all the tips.

Debbie Heiman says:

Bobbi Brown Long Wear is the product you convinced me to try.

Suanne Nutter says:

love you guys !

Savanna Filip says:

What is the number one product for wrinkles? What about for dark. circles? pls help

Angel T. says:

Love you guys! I love Marc Jacobs gel liner.

April M. Wemigwans- Mezi Megwaan Kwe says:

I’m loving you two and this channel, new subscriber here and new to applying make up. Your channel is a lifesaver. I love the gel eyeliner because it stays on all day, and it’s gives me that dark look to bring out my eyes.

Liz Plawman says:

Is there a less expensive liner then the makeup forever for waterline

flurries says:

Interesting; I tried the MUFE Aqua XL black pencil when I was first looking for waterline pencils and it disappeared rather quickly from my waterline (and I have dry eyes). The only liners I’ve found that stay all day in the waterline are the Marc Jacobs Highliners and gel pot liners.

Meh Naz says:

Does anyone know what’s the name of the eyeliner that took the longest to take off with the remover? Thank you.

Amanda Bern says:

As a 49 year woman with ever increasing hooded eyes (and little lid space), love, love colored eyeliner. Marc Jacobs lavender is amazing for bringing green out. if your worried about drying out eye area, the kopari coconut is good at removing eyeliner.

Fabiana Fran says:

You are amazing guys! I would like to ask if it is safe to remove the eye liner from the water line with these removers. Thank you so much!
